During a panel discussion on CNN’s “State of the Union, ” former Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm got into a shouting match with a Florida Republican lawmaker who insisted on standing up for what Granholm called a “lawless” Donald Trump
Sitting next to Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL), Granholm waited patiently for the Florida Republican to make his case that Trump should not be impeached before confronting him.
“I notice you did not answer the original question which is: you’ve got to be troubled as a member of Congress that the president is lawless in not responding to not just subpoenas, but bringing his people before him or the tax returns that under law are required to be produced,” Granholm charged.
“I’m saying about this because turnabout is going to happen. Do you have a responsibility constitutionally–,” she continued only to have Waltz shoot back, interrupting her, “I don’t expect them to open the door to the executive branch and –”
Granholm then cut him off.
“It’s okay with being lawless,” she pressed.
“It’s not lawless. That’s hyperbole, ” Waltz snapped with a dismissive look.

California Dem cracks up C-SPAN host: Why are angry GOP callers on the East coast ‘not at work?’
A caller from California noted to C-SPAN on Thursday that many Republican callers on the East coast do not seem to have jobs.
At the close of Thursday's Washington Journal program, C-SPAN host Bill Scanlan spoke to a Democratic caller named Ray from Napa Valley, California.
Ray began by defending House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is conducting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
"It wouldn't matter who they picked," Ray said. "The GOP -- the Grand Old Party, that's what I like to call them because they are the old party. You know, they're the dividers. My friends that are Republicans, they're the one that are being divided."
